Mounties host neighbourhood safety forum in Cloverdale Thursday

Residents of the Cowtown/Greenaway neighbourhoods are invited to a safety forum with Surrey RCMP this Thursday.

Surrey RCMP are launching a second set of neighbourhood safety forums at local schools, hoping to further engage communities.

George Greenaway Elementary (17285 61A Ave.) is hosting a session this Thursday night for residents of the Greenaway and Cowtown neighbourhoods in Cloverdale.

It gets underway at 6:30 p.m. May 21.

More than 500 Surrey residents turned out to the first series in the Mounties’ Neighbourhood Safety Campaign, which launched in January.

“For crime prevention to be truly effective, it requires a coordinated effort between residents and police,” Staff Sgt. Scott Campbell said. “We are looking forward to connecting with more residents and addressing crime concerns in those areas.”

The sessions provide residents with updates on local crime trends and current policing initiatives, information on property crime and how to report crime and suspicious activity.

Participants will also learn how they can play a role in crime prevention.

Register by visiting the Surrey RCMP website at www.surrey.rcmp.ca, and click on ‘Neighbourhood Safety Campaign” under “Policing Highlights.” You may also call the crime prevention coordinator in your area by contacting your local Surrey RCMP district office.

Contact the Cloverdale/Port Kells District office at 604-502-6266 or by email at cloverdale@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
